  • Excerpt: The Intel I7-980x being reviewed today is one of those products coming onto the market that you know know is more of a 32nm victory lap rather than a product that is trying to leap-frog the competition.

  • Conclusion: For the Divx 7 benchmark, we took a short 1080 HD video clip and passed it through the Divx 7 converter tool. This processes was repeated 5 times, with the media time reported as the final result. For this benchmark, we again found little difference between the i7-980X and i7-975.

Intel Core i7 980X Extreme Edition

ITP.net
26 April 2010
  • Summary: Verdict: There’s no denying the 980X is an impressive beast. The only issue is that it’s still ahead of the software curve, so unless you’re already using multi-threaded software, it’s better to wait for the 980X’s price to drop before taking the plunge.
  • Pros: Insanely fast when tackling multi-threaded software, compatible with existing X58 motherboards, same TDP as older quad-core chip.
  • Cons: Expensive.

TechSpot
23 March 2010
  • Excerpt: This is an obvious exception to the rule for pretty much any component that's been on the market for over 12 months, and no doubt a current owner pleaser.

Intel Core i7 980X, Core i5 650 and Core i3 530 review

IT-review.net
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Without a shadow of a doubt, the Core i7 980XE is the fastest desktop CPU around, and by a large margin. We'd especially like to point out the fact that it's just a lot faster then core i7 920, that's our standard CPU for "playing around" with OC.
